The electric field induced refractive index change and absorption coefficient change in TE polarization are analyzed at room temperature for several interdiffusion modified Al/sub 0.3/Ga/sub 0.7/As-GaAs quantum-well structures. The results show that for the small and medium interdiffusion lengths with fields of 100 and 50 kV/cm, respectively, improved chirping and electroabsorption can be obtained. Further, in a selected set of interdiffusion lengths and fields, the material can be used for an electroabsorption modulator with reduced chirping in a wide range of operation wavelengths (758-874 nm).<>
